According to the Daily Mail, Liverpool will receive £ 2 million in compensation from FIFA after Joe Gomez is injured.
As if Liverpool’s defensive problems weren’t bad enough for Virgil van Dijk, Fabinho and Trent Alexander-Arnold’s injuries, they are worse now.
Gomez suffered a knee injury while training with England during this international hiatus and now looks set to miss the majority of the season.
With Matip often taking the punches, Gomez was seen as a Liverpool defender relying on the punches, but he will be out for several months now.
It is now reported that FIFA has told the Football Association that they will cover Gomez’s £ 80,000 a week wage during his exit, which means Liverpool will receive around two million pounds.
England’s international players are part of the FIFA Club Protection Program, which means injuries sustained in international duty are protected by compensation.
It won’t exactly relieve Liverpool’s pain, but it is at least a form of reward for the Reds as they prepare to deal with losing their best central defenders for the remainder of the season.
